Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 19 No Can Do

No Can Do

“I need an appointment to see the doctor please”

“OK, ring next month.”

“I need to see him today, it’s urgent.”

“No can do, you’ll have to wait.” said the dictator the receptionist.

“But I can’t breathe!”

“You can’t just be ill whenever you feel like it Sir…..
we have a surgery to run here!”

Here we'd call an ambulance- if you arrive in one at the hospital, they get right on it!

MarmiteToasty said...

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

That is so accurate! I've just been through the same routine with the dentist!

Akelamalu said...

Sad but true Citizen!

You remember how it was when you lived here Dumdad? Or is it like this in France too?

My surgery is good but MWM's is bad Flowerpot.

Not me, MWM, g-man. Happy Easter to you to honey. x

I think they'll get the gist Miss U,I take it you have the same trouble at your surgery too? Happy Easter m'deario. x

Our hospitals are usually good Buff, but getting to see your GP is a nightmare!

Thanks Marmie, I very rarely go to the doctors, when I do it is usually something major!!

Ah getting an appointment with the dentist isn't too bad here Nick.

Mary said...

Excellent! I hate when this happens.

Easter blessings to you and your family.

Akelamalu said...

Thankyou Storyteller I'm please you enjoy them. x

At least we don't have insurance to deal with Ciara, I suppose we should be grateful for small mercies!

Happy Easter to you and yours too Mary :0
